Rat's Nest Cave Adventure Tour

Looking for something warmer to try this winter? Caving is perfect, as the temperature inside is a constant +5 degrees. Explore ancient passageways in Rat's Nest Cave near Canmore and see large chambers, narrow passages and a tranquil underground pool. Along the way, descend an 18m rappel, and crawl through the 'laundry chute' for just some of the highlights of this thrilling adventure. Course meets in Canmore. Prerequisite: moderate physical condition. Includes: caving guide, coveralls, all technical equipment. For additional dates, contact Rachel: hike@ucalgary.ca.
